Now, on to the details
This information is provided as a courtesy. You will get no stammering on the phone about how much I charge for my services. I am not ashamed of my price points because I know my services are worth my costs. Now, the details.
One of the most common questions is "How much does it cost?" Rates are variable. A DJ can charge anywhere from a few hundred dollars all the way up $3,000. Sometimes even more than that! All of this depends on the services you wish to use, the quality and dependability of the DJ in question, the extent of experience the DJ has overall, the size/location of the event, type of event being held, and more. I have been in the DJ field for over 2 1/2 decades! Working Weddings, Birthdays , Anniversaries , Corporate events , Karaoke , and club and outdoor settings, fundraisers and charities as well. I have a premium light show and digital quality sound. I incorporate wireless microphones if you wish.
I use BOSE for 'The Best Sound Around.'
A PAIR OF BOSE L1 SPEAKERS
WILL FILL THE ROOM WILL FULL AND CRYSTAL CLEAR SOUND THAT YOU WILL BE AMAZED TO LISTEN TO! A FULL 180 DEGREE SOUND FLOW THAT IS DESIGNED TO ENTERTAIN THE DANCERS YET NOT OVERPOWER THE ROOM!
I only use high quality/heavily shielded wiring to ensure the best of digital sound. My premium light show includes a system with a large collection of DMX compatible lighting by 'American DJ' , 'Chauvet' and more. Not to mention a monogram light that can either be basic or personalized for you as well!
You can count on me to 'Make Your Moment Magic.' Please know that the best price is not always the best option. The more you get to know me the more you will see I am the DJ for your event. In all cases a retainer fee is due in advance to reserve your booking.
These rates are averaged. Just to give you a good idea of what my services are worth to someone ready to book a quality DJ to make sure your event is a success. The rates listed on this page do not reflect final rate prices in any contractual agreement. All standard event rates are based on a 4 hour minimum time frame.
